Pastoral Care & Counseling
We want to help you however we can. Below is a list of ministries that can assist when life gets tough and you need some help.
Through caring relationships, Stephen Ministers lovingly walk with those who are hurting and are in need of support during difficult circumstances. This is a confidential ministry, and those receiving care can be sure that their identity and the conversations conducted within in the caring relationship will remain private.
Stephen Ministers are not professional counselors. They are ordinary men and women who have received 50 hours of initial training in important caring ministry skills such as listening, assertiveness, confidentiality, crisis theory, intervention, and the use of prayer and the Bible. If you are interested in being encouraged by a Stephen Minister, or being trained as one, contact us at StephenMinistry@NorthWoodChurch.org.
